Common OSS-RC Components .

Common Components OSS-RC Components › OSS Network Explorer (ONE) › Fault Management (FM) – Alarm List Viewer – Alarm Status Matrix › Performance Management › Configuration Management – Software Management Organiser (SMO) – OSS Common Explorer (CEX) – Advanced MO Scripting (AMOS) .

OSS Network Explorer (ONE) Site Cell .

Fault Management › Fault Management in OSS-RC includes: – Alarm List Viewer – Alarm Log Browser – Alarm Status Matrix › Alarm logs are managed through the Fault Management Kernel › Fault Management Kernel use the Mediation Functions for alarm translation .

FM – Alarm List Viewer Quick Filter .

FM – Alarm Status Matrix .

ENIQ – Configuring Performance Counters on Network Elements – Collection of UE trace and Cell Trace data .Performance Mediation › OSS-RC Performance Mediation offers: – South Interfaces towards Network Elements – North Interfaces towards NMS solutions. eg.

Performance Mediation .

allows us to change node configuration individually . which does not belong to OSS.Configuration Management › OSS-RC offers utilities for Configuration Management › SMO (Software Management Organiser) is a main point of reference for Software Rollout activities. › Health Checks help us with retrieving the Hardware state › AMOS (Advanced MO Scripting) gives us more control over node configuration (for CPP nodes) › Element Manager.

SMO – Software Management Organiser › › › › › › › › › › Software inventory Software distribution Remote software upgrade Monitor upgrade jobs in parallel Backup administration Automatic Software Deployment Uniform handling of different NE types Distribute license key files to CPP NEs License Inventory Hardware data collection .

SMO Network browser .

SMO Jobs .

The following information can be shown: – Restart information – Alarm information – Cell availability – Hardware status and information – Disk availability – Errors on the NE .Health Checks › Health checks can help us get the status of Network Elements.

Health Checks .

AMOS › Command line Element Manager (AMOS/MoShell) › Advanced NE services – – – – – Read NE Trace and Error logs NE File Transfer Performance Measurement MO Configuration Service Alarm Handling › Advanced Scripting › Batch Scripting .

Network Element Management .

SON – Self Organising Networks .

SON Overview SON › BSIM – Autointegration – Configuration Management continued › Automatic Neighbour Relations .

Configuration Management Supporting SON › OSS-RC offers utilities for Configuration Management › BSIM – Base Station Integration Manager is used as a configuration manager for EUTRAN Nodes › Auto-integration simplifies the ERBS integration process by minimising manual work › CM in OSS-RC helps with SON features. such as ANR .

OSS Common Explorer Network Configuration .

OSS Common Explorer Network Status .

BSIM .

eg. Node Name. IP address. . Cell ID › Substitution variables have percentage signs surrounding the name value. Name values appear as Field names in the BSIM GUI.BSIM Templates › BSIM uses XML templates to configure – Parameter values for non site specific parameters – Substitution variables for site specific parameters.

BSIM – Auto Integration BSIM Loads OSS dB 1) Run BSIM GUI Creates site files SMRS Selects upgrade package Creates/stores config files OSS-RC 2) Take files to site Fetches SW pkg Connects to OSS Fetches config files MME Establishes S1 3) Install eNB Establishes X2 New eNB SGW .

the following are then done automatically: – O&M IP address assigned – Site configuration fetched – Security certificate signed – Authentication towards OSS-RC – OSS-RC configures S1 termination – OSS-RC activates radio plan – License key is activated – RBS unlocks . by initiating the “Integrate RBS” wizard.BSIM › Integration begins onsite.

ANR › Reduced maintenance › Planning not required › Increased service assurance (less drops) .

Pursue handover X2 Cell B Cell A . OSS-RC is Updated OSS EPC 4.ANR 1. Unknown cell reported by UE 2. ANR establishes X2 3.

ANR › Relations can time out › Whitelists and blacklist administer the ANR policy › OSS can control the following: – View ANR controlled eNodeBs – Activate/Deactivate ANR for one or several eNodeB’s. cluster or entire EUTRAN network – Restore ANR for one cluster or EUTRAN network – View and edit X2 Whitelist and X2 Blacklist for a selected eNodeB – View and modify ANR function parameters for a selected eNodeB – View and modify X2 timer parameters for a selected eNodeB – View and modify ANR parameters for a selected EUtranCellRelation – Execute Sub-Network Consistency Check for ANR attributes .

exercises Apply the learnings .

Exercises with OSS-RC › Requirements: – Access to an OSS-RC system – OSS-RC system is not on a live network. find OSS-RC components › Fault Management › Performance Mediation – Launch Common Explorer. for example. navigate through the network. navigate through SMO options › Find SW packages › Check Job status . test plant or trial – DO NOT make any changes to the OSS-RC system › Exercises: – Launch OSS Network Explorer. navigate and find Configuration Management tools › BSIM › ANR – Launch SMO (Software Management Organiser).

Summary .

Summary › OSS-RC focuses on service assurance – Configuration Management – Fault Management – Performance Mediation › It achieves this by being a centralised entity › Introduces some features of SON in LTE › Main point of reference for Network Activities – Software Rollout – Network configuration/optimisation – Performance Mediation and Alarm Monitoring .
